You are confusing respect for another country's right to exist and blackmail. That level of respect goes up when dealing with ANY nuclear power, including Russia.
You are confusing a country that threatens to blow up the whole region and possibly some of Europe with an "ally".
We (the US) threaten that on a regular basis, (not overtly, but as a defense mechanism), and WE are considered an ally by many. Sounds like they are doing the same thing we are.
